Viral Papillomas Warts

Hi everyone, I posted this in the medical forum but thought I would put it here as well.

Just wanted to see if anyone has had any experience with Viral Papillomas Warts on their Bully? Ernie currently has a wart on his chin that is fairly big, and has also started to get a couple little ones in the fold by his eye.

I have done some research on it and it is a Viral Papillomas wart. From what I have read, they will go away once his immune system becomes more mature, but I was wondering if anyone who has had experience with this has any other tips in order to get them to go away sooner than the 5 month period I have been reading online.

Thank You!



Dudley had them when he was 1

Dudley had them when he was 1 or 2 years old. They go away by themselves after a few months and should be left alone.

Molly had them too.

She had lots of them in her mouth (so gross) around 7-8 months old.  Luckily, they appeared a couple days before she was scheduled to get spayed so the vet just lasered them off while she was under anesthesia.  But I wouldn't have done anything if that wasn't the case.  I think they go away once the immune system gets stronger.
